Please take extra care of yourselves over the next few weeks as any schedule changes can be challenging, especially in these time.

Some ways to manage stress as a family:

  • Stick to a schedule. Get started with a schedule in advance. This lets you know who should be where and when. This cuts down on brain energy as well as decreases the chances of missing important things.
  • Go for walks. Going for a walk as a family is a great way to get some stress relieving exercise. It also is a perfect opportunity to unplug and actually communicate about your lives.
  • Everyone chips in. Delegate tasks as part of your schedule. Everyone should be able to chip in, big or small.
  • Bed time routine. Unplugging an hour before bedtime and getting started with your bedtime routine is vital to flying and staying asleep. Think sleep training but for children and adults. You may all spend time reading, doing some yoga stretches or even having a shower or bath. This is a time to wind down. Remember, sleep is important for your functioning during the day, your recovery from physical and mental work, and definitely to help bolster your immune system.
